This is the first game in the Cooking Mama series. For other games in the series see the Cooking Mama category.

Cooking Mama (クッキング ママ Kukkingu Mama?) is a cookery simulation-styled minigame compilation video game for the Nintendo DS and iPhone developed by Cooking Mama Limited (formerly known as Office Create) and published by Taito in Japan and for the iPhone OS, Majesco in North America and 505 Games in Europe. It was awarded IGN's "Best Of E3" award for 2006 and was joined by a sequel for the DS, Cooking Mama 2: Dinner with Friends. Two games have since been made for the Wii, Cooking Mama: Cook Off and Cooking Mama: World Kitchen.

In Cooking Mama, the player is tasked with cooking various meals using the device's touch screen. Following the instructions of the titular "Mama", the player uses the stylus or finger to chop vegetables, slice meat, flip food in pans, and arrange the final items on the plate. The version of the game for the iPhone and iPod Touch also takes advantage of the accelerometer in the device with some similar gameplay to Cooking Mama: Cook Off. Each of these tasks is performed by completing a mini-game which usually lasts less than 10 seconds. The gameplay structure consists of the player progressing through a series of short minigames. The game features a total of 96 different dishes.
